Magento community is steadily moving towards full adoption of Magento 2.x. More and more merchants are migrating to Magento 2.x and hence more developers and agencies are developing Magento 2.x projects enthusiastically. It is also getting stable as a platform with each passing day. However, like any new system, it still has many open issues and technical flaws that need to be sorted out soon.

This also means that Magento 1.x is still alive and being used widely. Hungersoft recommends that no new projects should be developed using Magento 1.x as base but the 1.x webshops that are already live can continue to run as long as the merchant wishes to. For that to happen, it is very important that you keep your Magento CE 1.x webshop updated with all security patches released by Magento. This will not only keep your webshop secure and safe but will also help you exending its life and hence saving you alot of money for the time being. If you have not been keeping your Magento CE 1.x webshop updated with latest security patches then you should get it done on urgent basis. It is even more important with EUGDPR in place now. Keeping your customer data secure is fully your responsibility and these security patches will help you with that.

Security patch installation should only be performed by expert professionals and it goes without saying that they should be attempted and tested on a development environment first. And don't forget to take backup of live files and database before applying any new security patches. Test your webshop frontend and backoffice well after applying any patches as they do tend to cause issues.
